Yes, you may select to receive your payments via an electronic funds transfer (EFT). EFT payments are only available for U.S. accounts. You must complete Chaparral’s direct deposit form to enroll. You should know if you elect to receive EFT payments, your payment details will no longer be mailed to you. Details can, however, be accessed through the appropriate Owner Relations portal.

How often will I receive a payment?

Chaparral makes revenue payments on or about the twenty seventh of each month. If your account has reached the minimum pay status of $100, or if requested in writing $25, you will receive a payment at that time.

What are stale dated checks?

Chaparral’s revenue checks are not negotiable after 180 days. Checks issued more than 180 days from the current date are considered stale dated. These checks cannot be cashed and must be reissued.

Ownership Changes

Changes in ownership or owner status for land and mineral rights require updated title records. You should ensure you have the appropriate documentation, which is outlined in the table below, for each type of change. Requirements can vary depending on the state in which the minerals are located.

By law, Chaparral cannot provide forms for conveying real property interests. You should contact an attorney, legal aid society or your local bar association for assistance in handling these matters. All documents related to a change of ownership must be filed in the county where the property is located.

You should send a COPY of all required documents. Documentation must be kept on file and will not be returned. Please be sure to include the current owner’s number with all correspondence, which you must mail to Chaparral Energy Attn: Owner Relations 701 Cedar Lake Blvd. Oklahoma City, OK 73114.

All payments will continue to be made to the current owner until proper documentation is received. You should retain your check detail for future reference.
